Data Theft: Kaiser Permanente

The health care company, Kaiser Permanente has stated that personal details of 29,500 employees  have been exposed in a data theft incident.

So far “A handful” of employees have reported identify theft, the company has stated – but its early days, and the details were stolen for a reason!

But, unusually the police have a suspect, and the Police have arrested a suspect, and recovered a file containing the stolen details. The suspect was not an employee of the company, and not further information has been provided. But the details have probably already been sold, so recovery of the source file, does not mean that all victims details  are not circulating around the internet.
